to say that dylan is pregnant. >> i realized that too. >> it was my birthday the whole time. just so you guys know. i just want to clear the air. >> i'm glad we cleared all of that up. we've got a lot of news to get to this morning. it's the return of the american doctor infected with the potentially deadly ebola virus. he shocked a lot of people watching when he walked into the atlanta hospital where he's being treated this morning. we continue to await the arrival of a second american aide worker. kate snow has the latest for us. >> reporter: good morning. his wife says he is in great spirits and extremely grateful to be here. he is the first person with ebola to ever be treated in the united states. this moment that surprised everyone. brantly, a father of two,
emerging from an ambulance in full protective gear and walking into emory university hospital. his family were watching inside. when they saw his strength, they cried tears of joy. >> i was stunned but encouraged when i saw dr. brantly walk from that ambulance into the hospital. it's at least a sign of strength. >> reporter: he came from liberia on a private plane specially equipped to transport him in a sealed environment. then an ambulance for a 22 mile ride on atlanta highways and side streets. the cdc is getting hate mail from americans for allowing such a deadly virus into this current. >> the unit is staffed with experts. >> reporter: but doctors here are confident they can keep ebola isolated with strict safety procedures like burning
everything used in his room. >> there's again a process in place to make sure his family can communicate with the patient but in a way where there's no risk of transmission. >> reporter: brantly's wife amber spent a good 45 minutes with him last evening. last july, kent brantly gave this sermon at his childhood church. >> god took the reigns and nothing since then has gone as i expected. >> reporter: doctors are still assessing brantly's condition this morning, making sure his organs work. meantime, the plane that flew him here is on its way back to liberia now to pick up the other american who will be treated in the united states. at major u.s. airports, the cdc is there making sure on commercial flights no one is coming in. dr. eileen far lan is a
infectious disease specialist. we know you have not seen dr. brantly, but as a specialist you know a lot about this. give us a sense. when you saw that video of dr. brantly walking on his own out of the ambulance into the hospital, what did that tell you about his current condition? >> well, i was very encouraged to see that. hopefully it means he's well on the way to recovery. he's apparently been infected as early as a week or more ago. this must mean that he's in fairly stable condition that he's able to walk. it is an infection with very high mortality. so it's important to remember that although this particular strain can cause 80% mortality, some people do survive. >> we know there's no vaccine.
we've heard talk about a serum, that there's one serum on the ground there. and the missionary we're waiting on her arrival back in the u.s. took that serum. what is the course of treatment at this point? >> right. so for her, it's important to remember that that serum is experimental. and theoretically, it should give an advantage to help to clear the virus from the body, but at this point, it's entirely experimental. so -- >> so dr. brantly did not have that serum. >> right. >> what is happening to him at this point. >> at this point, he's receiving supportive care. that means that the clinicians will support his blood pressure, they'll monitor and collect his fluid and give his body the best chance of overcoming this infection. >> they just have to monitor and help if they can.
is there a timeline at this point as to when he could really start to show signs of more improvement? >> sure. most patients start to show signs of improvement by about two weeks when the virus is starting to clear their body. at that point, they really start to feel better and improve rapidly. once the virus is cleared from their body, they can be discharged home. >> hopefully we'll get some of that news. lester? >> investigators are scouring the crash site of malaysian airlines flight 17 again this morning. earlier today, a tearful memorial service was held in australia where three young children were killed when the plane was shot from the sky. sarah james has that story. >> reporter: long trips and simple bedtime cuddles recalled at this memorial service in
australia and the grandfather. they were heading home from a family holiday. the children's parents to follow in a few days when mh-17 went down. >> when their innocent bodies were shot out of the sky -- i stretched my arm as high as i could and screamed for them and the loves arms will always be open for them. my arms will always be reaching for them. >> reporter: a thousand friends and family gathered to remember the tight knit trio. >> someone said they were close they were meant to be together. >> reporter: this video taped for a family friend in amsterdam shortly before the fatal flight

drink. this family left town, drove nearly two hours so their kids would be safe. >> we weren't sure if it was safe to bathe in the water. we saw that water was going fast at all the stores. we wanted to get water as fast as we could. >> reporter: the scramble for water started just after 2:00 a.m. saturdays. within hours, lines at grocery stores stretched around the block. police called in for crowd control. lake erie, a major source of drinking water for toledo may have been impacted by a harmful allergae algae. >> we're trying toer on the side of safety. >> a precious resource suddenly so hard to find. yet another deadly scene this morning in the southern gaza strip when an air strike hit the area near a united
nations school. this comes as israel's military learns the soldier captured by hamas is in fact dead. richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, lester. israel says that the soldier who went missing here in gaza was on friday was in fact killed. it's unclear if he was killed in the initial palestinian attack in which militants allegedly tried to capture him or by the israeli military response right after that attack. today, palestinians were injured and killed as they were trying to take shelter in a un school. they say israel targeted a suspected militant right at the gate of a school used as a shulter in southern gaza. there were multiple casualties. the round exploded as people and staff were coming in and out of
the u.n.-run school. israeli tanks pulled back. the israeli military says it's nearly finished with its primary mission, to destroy the hamas tunnels into israel. hamas rocket fire into israel has slowed, but not stop. >> they believe the people of israel do not have the will and determination to fight them. hamas again will learn the hard way that israel will do whatever it must do to protect its people. >> reporter: for most, this war has given them nothing but funerals, wounded, and grief. during lulls in the fighting, palestinians have been trying to salvage their belongings. relatives were divided over how to respond to the strike that turned this house into a tomb.
you want us to surrender? we won't, he said. either will live in this country with piece and dignity or we die. we've had war after war, he said. our people want nothing more than to live in peace and dignity. israel wants quiet and says it will stop fighting when that happens. gaza wants far more, a deal that will give them a better life. so far, they're not getting it. and today, the israeli military dropped these leaflets over gaza. they say the campaign is on going and leaders of terrorist groups are not safe. ry is moderator of meet the press. david, good morning. >> good morning. >> washington has been largely supportive of israel in this,
but they are clearly pushing them for a truce. what's the state of the relationship right now between the white house and israel? >> i think there's elements of it that are pretty tense behind the scenes. listen to president obama on friday. he was strongly supportive of israel and he was the one that questioned whether a cease-fire was possible. i haven't heard the obama administration so strongly behind israel in quite a long time as they've had a tough relationship between obama and net tanya huh. >> is there a political calculation here for the white house? >> it's not so much whether to support israel, it is how much pressure to apply and to start thinking about where it can make a difference in the region. i think a calculation for israel is whether they can win militarily, but what the price is.
even to its own security. >> let's talk about a domestic matter here. congress recessed without passing an immigration bill. the president says he'll go it alone if necessary. what can he do on this front? >> there's a number of things he can do with regard to those who are here illegally, he can provide a temporary pass, a work pass to a temporary stay here. can provide more relief to children here illegal. he wanted supplemental funds to help in that process. he's certainly not going to get that. but he can certainly take some steps that could legalize for skom period of time those people here in an undocument way which is going to make republicans very unhappy. and time now for a look at the rest of the morning's top stories. >> lester, good morning, california is under a state of
